Virat Kohli shuts up the critics about Dhoni in his statement

Indian batting order was once again criticized after they struggled to score 268 for 7 wickets. The middle order was completely exposed yet again. Fans in Twitter were angry at the way the match was going up until 45th over and Dhoni was criticized for wasting balls initially.

Later, Dhoni blasted the balls with his bat and scored 56, not out off 61 balls, finishing the game with his signature six. Though many fans were against Dhoni, some were also supporting him claiming getting stability was important.

When people were criticizing Dhoni after Afghanistan match, Indian captain Kohli jumped to his defense, speaking for the veteran cricket player.

“Dhoni knows exactly what he wants to do in the middle. When he has an off day here and there, everyone starts talking. We always back him. He has won us so many games. The best thing about having someone like him is when you need those 15-20 runs, he knows exactly how to get them. His experience, 8 out of 10 times has come good for us. We have quite a few players who play instinctive cricket and follow their game plans,” Kohli said.
